Schoharie Creek

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

With many hatches over lapping right now fishing two flies will be the most productive. The lead fly should be a heavy nymph with a wet or emerger fly as the second fly. My favorite currently, due to the prominent hatches, is a Bead Head Prince Nymph as the first fly with a Caddis Emerger tied about a foot behind as the second fly. Cast the combination upstream and nymph them downstream until they straighten with the current. Then slowly strip the flies back towards you. This technique covers a lot of productive water.

Seven-day forecast 

This week started out more like October with daytime highs only in the lower fifties. The rest of the week will be more seasonal with mostly sunny skies and temperatures back into the upper seventies.
